Melody started her multifamily journey in 2004 and brings over 18 years of property management experience to Canyon View. She started as a leasing agent in 2004 and worked her way up to Sr. Leasing agent in 2006, Assistant Manager in 2008, and Property Manager in 2010. Melody closely worked with the acquisition team where she helped with onboarding and training new team members at the new properties from the leasing team to the maintenance team. She obtained her CAM (Certified Apartment Manager) accreditation in 2012.
In 2015, Melody was awarded “Apartment Manager of the Year” by the Arkansas Apartment Association and has been involved with AAA for over 10 years by holding many committee positions from Golf Chair, Manager Chair, and Vendor Chair. Melody is currently the 2022 Arkansas Apartment Associations President and has served on the Executive Board from Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice President over the past years. Before coming on board with Canyon View in 2021 as the property manager at The Grove at Pleasant Valley, she worked in vendor management for a few years where she got to meet with owners, managers, and maintenance teams but decided that her passion was on the property side of the multifamily industry.
